Ariana Grande's former friend, Nathan Sykes, was freed from the fact that he was not checked out in the name of the latest "thank u, next" single about the previous flames.
Pete Davidson, former debutant Mac Miller, Big Sean and dancer Ricky Alvarez on "thank u," and the British singer who had a short love story with "Dangerous Woman" in 2013 – admitted he was delighted to be left outside.
Asked if he heard the song, the 25-year-old told TMZ: "I have not yet, but I have heard that it's okay.
"That's good – it's beautiful. I heard it was amazing, so fantastic.
"If people release good music and are happy with the music they release, then I think it's great."
When asked about what Ariana thought of learning from their time together, he replied: "It's not a question for me. I'm not telling anyone what they can learn from me."
Recognizing that he has grown heavily since then, he added: "It was a long time ago, I suppose you're growing up as a person, did not you? You were very, very young."
And when asked if she would consider meeting Ariana again now she is alone, he insisted: "No. As I said, it is a long time ago."
